Hi! I'm Mahrukh Khalid,a senior in high school, I love to write and make people feel good about themselves so I'll do just that :)

Summer 2017

Summer vacations wasn't the only good news!

Animators' announcement of new anime series, sequels and movies. So are you ready? I know I am!

Here are a few you should look forward to:


1. Sagrada/Sakurada Reset

If your looking for some addicting slice-of-life with some drama, Sagrada Reset is worth of an applause.

Nearly half the population of Sakurada, a small town near the Pacific Ocean, has some sort of unique power. These powers range from being able to enter the mind of a cat, to resetting the world back to a certain point in time in the past. There is a group known as the "Kanrikyoku" that controls and monitors the use of these powers. Asai Kei and Haruki Misora work for their school's club called "Houshi" club, which execute any missions received from the Kanrikyoku. Misora has the ability to reset the world back 3 days. This means that all events and any memory of the past 3 days that "could have" happened, never happened. Kei has the ability to "remember" the past. Even after Misora uses her powers to reset the world back 3 days, Kei will retain those 3 days in his memory. Combining their powers, these two solve missions issued by the Kanrikyoku.

2. Kimi no Koe wo Todoketai (Movie)

Next up is a fun and easy going anime movie. If you want to relax and cool off this summer, watching this movie will sooth your nerves.

The story focuses on high school girl Nagisa Yukiai who lives in a seaside town. She has believed her grandmother's story that spirits dwell in words and they are called "kotodama" (word spirit). One day, she strays into a mini FM station that has not been used for years. As an impulse of the moment, she tries to talk like a DJ using the facility. But her voice accidentally broadcasted reaches someone she has never expected.

3. Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6

Natsume Yuuchinchou is one of the top slice-of-life, comedy and action anime of all times. Having been popular to reach 5 seasons is itself a big accomplishment. But a season 6, now that's amazing!

While most fifteen-year-old boys, in one way or another, harbor secrets that are related to girls, Takashi Natsume has a peculiar and terrifying secret involving youkai: for as long as he can remember, he has been constantly chased by these spirits. Natsume soon discovers that his deceased grandmother Reiko had passed on to him the Yuujinchou, or "Book of Friends," which contains the names of the spirits whom she brought under her control. Now in Natsume's possession, the book gives Reiko's grandson this power as well, which is why these enraged beings now haunt him in hopes of somehow attaining their freedom.

Without parents and a loving home, and constantly being hunted by hostile, merciless youkai, Natsume is looking for solace—a place where he belongs. However, his only companion is a self-proclaimed bodyguard named Madara. Fondly referred to as Nyanko-sensei, Madara is a mysterious, pint-sized feline spirit who has his own reasons for sticking with the boy.

Based on the critically acclaimed manga by Yuki Midorikawa, Natsume Yuujinchou is an unconventional and supernatural slice-of-life series that follows Natsume as he, with his infamous protector Madara, endeavors to free the spirits bound by his grandmother's contract.

4. Youkai Apartment no Yuuga na Nichijou

If your looking for something similar to 'Natsume Yuujinchou' this is a good choice as well. Though with a different plot, the story is based on yokais. Action and comedy.

Inaba Yuushi's parents died in his first year of middle school, and he moved in with his relatives. Though they did care for him, he could tell he was a burden. After he graduated, he happily prepared to move to a high school with a dormitory. Unfortunately, the dormitory burned to the ground before he could move in! Yuushi doesn't want to live with his grudging relatives, but it's rough finding lodging as an orphaned student with little money. He finally finds a room in a nice old building which seems too good to be true.

The catch is that it is a Monster House, a place where humans and supernatural creatures—ghosts, mononoke, etc.—live together. Another high schooler lives there, a cute girl named Akine, and she's completely unfazed by the monsters. In fact, she can even exorcise evil spirits! Yuushi's high school life just got much stranger than he ever bargained for!

5. Koe no Katachi (Movie)

Save the best for last, they say. This movie will not only make you cry an ocean but touch the deepest core of your heart. Sweet and calming, best for summer. This one indeed is a must watch!

Ishida Shouya bullies a deaf girl, Nishimiya Shouko, to the point that she transfers to another school. As a result, he is ostracized and bullied himself with no friends to speak of and no plans for the future.

This is the story of his path to redemption.

      Agreed, the kind of comedy that gives you a good laugh to remove all the stress.

      On the topic "Youkai Apartment" I always find it kinda funny when you got a little kid who's non responsive to something really outlandish.

      It kind of reminds me of Kanon. The main character's cousin has 38 alarm clocks sitting in her bedroom that cause a sonic boom of noise. Somehow, she can't wake up.
